I wake up, and I don't immediately think of you.

 * * *

This is not a story about heartbreak. It's about what happens after.

Based on the album "The First Days Of Spring" by Noah And The Whale. Listen to it while you read for the best experience.

(not Phan, nor Dan's POV, just to clear that up)

Now a FEATURED story! Find sequel "Work It Out" on my profile.

Translations in the works:
"Primele zile de primăvară" by @toxicmuffin (Romanian)
"Los Primeros Días de Primavera" by @AgueRomero (Spanish)
"Os Primeiros Dias de Primavera" by @allmylifeofrock (Portuguese)

I just wanted to say, you are a brilliant writer. I get sucked into every word sentance or paragraph. Thank you for writing, and thank you for the wonderful stories. ☺
1: Phil is uncomfortable. Stop.
                              2: Never, under any circumstance, cancel film/movie night.

No no no no nothing should ever make Phil uncomfortable and you, little girl that licked his face, I'm hunting you down

Cause I see you lying next to me
                              With words I thought I'd never speak
                              Awake and unafraid
                              Asleep or dead
not the time, but-
                              THIS IS NOT THE END,
                              THIS IS NOT THE END,
                              WE CAN MAKE IT
                              YOU KNOW IT 
                              YOU KNOW
